Hmm it depends on what the fight, argument etc is about
Bono in a physical fight
But I would not want to tangle with The Edge if he got really mad and lost it!

I do not want Larry to hit me however not for anything!!!

I wouldn't want to get into a fight with Bono. I can see him easily losing it and being a tough bugger when it comes to throwing punches. Though I'm sure he wouldn't hit a girl :D I would say Edge, but I just can't see him getting into a physical fight (besides that one time :D)

Bono almost beat Larry up once because Larry didn't come into a song when he was supposed to...

I thought he only threw something at Larry.

He picked up the drum kit because he couldn't see Larry. Larry was underneath it or something, trying to fix his drum, so Bono picked it up and chucked it. That's when Edge hit him.

Edge or Larry...

Think about it.

Edge is always calm and chilled out but when there's trouble...Who would wanna mess with dude who coordiantes with his hands?

Larry...HITS things hard everyday!!

Interesting Thread!!  :o

Maybe this things happened because they are too long together, spend a lot of time together and of course they become irritated and they might provoke each others but all of this is part of their job. Of course that there has to be moments like that.

Yeah, I think Larry would start something. I do not think that this fights or arguments would be to long because they are all grownups and will control their behaviors.

I am glad that Adam is not mentioned here, and I also think that he is too cool to start something, but you never know what is going on in their heads.

People, people, people.  Are we forgetting that Larry regularly gets injections of bull's blood to help him with his back?  He's a freakin' minotaur!  Larry by a mile.

Larry has always struck me as the most down to earth, no nonsense realist in the band and one tough cookie.

I don't think Bono would ever hit a woman, either.  But, I use to teach Martial Arts to children and I have to say.  It would be very difficult to tackle Bono to the ground.  First of all, he isn't too tall.  So his center of balance is closer to the earth.  Also, he is of muscular built.   Shorter, muscular people are very strong.  Even though, their size may deceive you.

Are you saying Bono is in fact squat. :)  When he's not on the road and he hits the tequila's he becomes a fat bugger.

Huh?  Muscular isn't fat.  Bono looks very strong, that's all.
